Choral society’s summer concert has a transatlantic flavour

A FEAST of music from both sides of the pond is in store at Henley Choral Society’s annual summer concert next Saturday (June 30).

The Christ Church Centre in Reading Road is the venue for “A Garland of Song — British and American Music for a Summer’s Evening”, which starts at 7.30pm.

A spokesman for the choral society said: “The programme will take you through a wonderful array of British and American choral and folk music arrangements by the celebrated composers John Rutter, Bob Chilcott, George Gershwin, Aaron Copland and Eric Whitacre.

Choral society chair Susan Edwards said: “Our concert repertoire is perfect for a summer evening full of love, friendship and gallantry! Peter has introduced us to a wonderfully rhythmic and harmonic concert programme. It’s not to be missed and we do hope you will join us for what is sure to be an uplifting event.”
